The Last of Us‘ Creative Director Neil Druckmann and Game Directior Bruce Stanley responded quite a few questions from the fan during an Ask Us Anything session on Reddit.

If you’re asking about a sequel… right now I’d say it’s 50/50.

Sony has complete trust in us. It’s really up to us to come up with something that will keep the team inspired for the next several years — which is why we don’t take the decision of what we’ll work on next lightly.

Dunno really – the DLC is on the PS3, so we haven’t gotten a whole lot of time with the “next-next gen” hardware. But I’m excited about having more memory, until we use it all up again!

Other then the common wish of a space IP from them, I think something like a bond/spy IP would be interesting. If (let's be honest when) the next TLOU comes out I hope it's a prequel with a new cast

It doesn't need a sequel at all.

The world is interesting though and so is the gameplay. It needs a The Division style massive multiplayer tps where players squad up and try find resources, kill the infected and protect their hideout

I'm all for a sequel. But not for at least 3/4 years. Give the game a rest and then come back with a bang on the PS4.

Would be fine with a new IP or sequel. But I really do want a sequel to TLOU. Not a one-off, that is, if they feel passionate and a good reason and need to go back. Otherwise it's fine as-is. I trust ND over my needs & wants.

It didn't sell so much that it'd be impossible to pitch Sony on something else doing better, but I'd be fairly surprised if they didn't get someone to follow it up if Naughty Dog moved on.

All of this.

The Last of Us became my favourite game ever last year. This was a one-and-done game for me and I feel like it told as much as it needed to without the need of a sequel. I'm glad we got Left Behind, but after it, no more.

Just make a 3rd team and let them handle the sequel, I'm serious they should, because if they began to make a new I.P. we'll be playing that game by 2017/2018.

If ND think a new TLOU is what they should do, then I have full faith in them. I have no reason to doubt them.

Yea, I don't get the aversion to sequels around here. A new IP would great, I agree, but I wouldn't mind sequels. Especially since ND always delivers, if that's what they want to do then I'll be there day 1 regardless. I don't care what people say, I loved UC3.

I'd say only do a sequel if they think they can top the first one. There are lots of things they could do in a sequel that would expand on the gameplay (ai for example)

I'd also like to see Ellie return as the lead, maybe a few years older. The character is just too good to leave alone.

TLoU was amazing to me but as a standalone game the DLC was great though. So in a way I think ND could do a sequel and find a way to make it work but a new IP would be preferable. Uncharted makes more sense to be ongoing series at least up to the upcoming 4th game.

If ND wants to go back to that universe, it's because they have another amazing story to tell, hopefully.

I trust in them to make something pretty awesome, whatever it is.

they're going to do a new IP or work on another property before returning to the TLOU world for a new game, and it won't have anything to do with Joel/Ellie/etc.

it'll be a new story, new people, etc. but i am betting on them returning to the franchise...
